Luke is it a possibility to just charge $3 to $5 for the app itself and at worst case just let Samsung keep the whole thing?  That at least would get more users and of course get Premiere sales for the server functionality.  I know that would suck but...

I’d be OK with that if it is indeed possible.

Hi.  We're trying to work this out.  Samsung is not interested in doing custom deals.  They have a set contract with large monetary commitments.  Period.

So you’d have to commit to a large amount of money without actually knowing how many new Premiere subscriptions you’ll get to cover that amount? Kinda of a leap of faith...

Were there different requirements for the three countries where it’s already released?

The US release or developer home country release is free. Not sure which of the two that is, but, US did not cost us anything. The other two, I won't go into the details of our contract with them, but it was a little easier. But to expand any further will now require a commitment from us.

I understand. And giving the nature of the Emby server I assume you have no idea on how many people are using the Samsung client (unless the Samsung store provides some info) so it’s hard to predict if the additional revenue will cover the costs. Difficult decision to make, I understand why it’s taking so long.

Well, I’ll keep an eye on this forum section to see if anything happens. Until then I have to hope that Plex will fix its Tizen client...

Interesting, im looking at the samsung app availability in AUS, and there are a tonne of really crap, nasty apps on the appstore, that are either russian, asian, or from other international countries, and there is no way that any of these would be paying big money to samsung to allow for publishing. Wonder how they got around it?

 

Some examples (all video apps)

 

Arm TVs

NhacCuaTui

Megogo

Sun NXT

Hmara.TV

Vizbee

Lyca TV

Shalom World

Yupp TV

iottott.tv

arti yerel medya

EITB

Mubi

Izi Tv

 

 

list goes on.

 

Terrible, international apps, with highly unlikely ability for large upfront payment deals..

Maybe you can reference these in your samsung negotiations?

Would it be option maybe to make it unofficial?

For example there is no TwitchTV app for my Samsung (UE60KS7002U). I got it installed was to switch TV into Developer mode and load the app from PC with Tizen Studio. I am not developer and certainly even less of a one when it comes to TVs, but i got it working. Ofc everyone would only do this at their own risk.

I dont know but i wouldnt pay for an emby app the way it is working right now, too many bugs imo. On other platforms (e.g. browser/mobile) it works descent.

Show me where to throw my money, Sensei Luke! :)

 

I'd be more than happy to pay for Premiere, if that's all it'd take. The only reason why I don't have Premiere, is because I wouldn't have a use for any of the features currently included. But I have a Samsung TV, and if they haven't budged in 2 years, I don't think they ever will. I do understand, though, that it's not preferable since it goes against your whole monetization strategy for the apps. I just really want the app. The old one is terribly slow.
